in and the government could compensate you for it and after an extended period of time it was illegal to own these. the problem with america you couldn't do that. there are 300 million guns in circulation. and i don't think any american under the right to bear arms amendment in the constitution, any conif you confiscation. in california they got 2,000 handed in, in one day. it was a start. people were handing in rocket launchers, charlie, in los angeles. you know, i look at britain. i look at australia. i looked at the reaction that happened to those massacres there, and it was very different to here. it wasn't awe political issue. it wasn't 11 and right. the australian prime minister, john howard, wrote in the "new york times," fascinating piece about -- >> rose: what he did. >> he was considered pretty far right conservative, but he brought in really draconian gun control, and as he pointed out,ain massacres per the port arthur massacre which was a tipping point in the previous 10 or 12 years, i think it was. and since 1996 not a single one. and in britain a very similar story. >> rose: does bri
by government against individuals. >> it's my hope that the president will finally be willing to do what republicans have been asking him to do since his first inauguration four years ago. >> i'm very glad that they-- i want to congratulate the house for directing people's attention to the failure of the senate under leader reid to bring us a budget to the floor. >> we support the idea that that ought not to be a political football that by becoming that, does damage to our economy. >> without any question, obama's real objective is not just obamacare, but it's to eliminate any political opposition, to just wipe them off the map and the media is now telling them not only will they help, but offering advice how to do it. >> who does that look like to you? >> for the past couple of weeks, this is how we've heard about jodi arias. >> do you know who that is? >> it looks like jodi. >> prosecutors working as hard as they can to send her to death row, but tonight, we hear about jodi in a different way. it happens here, her home for now, the maximum security tower in the jail in phoenix. i was g
under. and a government that basically drove up the deficit, and regional governments because regions are very important in spain, also drove up this problem with big deficits. and they weren't attended to. and so, in each one of these you have somewhat of a different reason. the case of italy, a debt to gdp of over 120%, and growing, and the lack of action and trying to do anything about it by the former government. he came in as a technician. technicians are great. whether it be greece or italy will be seen this. there'll be elections in italy and we will see how we does. but you need popular mandates to get changes really through. i'm encouraged with the ireland. they're making good progress getting back to the market but there's still a lot of problems. the latest victim is cyprus. the banks held a lot of greek paper. they ran up the deficit there, and so they are the latest bailout case that we are going to see. that each country is different, and that leads to what is the same, and that's contagion. europeans did not want to see that there was contagion at the time of greece. an
. give the right government to go in people's homes. there is no trust that that is where the democrats will stop it as a down payment on a slippery slope. jon: these are the people in 2008, senator obama sock clinging to their guns and religion? >> yes, these are the people that he believes he can move and persuade to be in favor of gun control in states like west virginia and wyoming. it's not going to happen. i will be very surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of the nra in times past. >> yes, harry reid cannot cross the nra. there are voters in a lot of these places. the nra doesn't speak for them. this is a popular position among actual voters and you can see the red states with blue feathers. jon: good analysis as always. thank you so muc
in mali is the destablizing the mali government. now nearby regions are seeing that there is a north african movement of islamism, or islamist. they're seeing weakening governments. they're using economic interests and foreign nationals as weapons because the biggest threat to the jihadist movement is western interests in the area and if they can get us to pull out, get france and europe to pull out, companies like this algerian gas company that was working with british and working with the norway statoil, if they can get them to pull out they will be more able to establish a foothold like they have done in mali and continue to spread into this vacuum that we have been completely missing in action with. melissa: steven, when you hear about the billion barrels in iraq, do you discount it because he hear about attacks like this in algeria? you realize again, just how difficult it is to get this oil to market? >> well, indeed. the situation in algeria, melissa, reminds us how vulnerable these situation situations in north africa is as your guest just said. two years ago with the libyan
